WESTFIELD, Massachusetts-( Savage’s MSR 10 Hunter is now available in the 338 Federal chambering. Since its introduction in 2006, the 338 Federal has established itself as an extremely versatile, high-performance big game cartridge. Shipments of these firearms are currently being delivered to dealers.

Built on the .308 case and “necked-up” to hold a .338 diameter bullet, this 338 Federal load offers hunters a faster muzzle velocity than the 308 Win. but with a heavier bullet. As a result, the short-action cartridge provides magnum energy for devastating performance on game, without magnum recoil.

Savage’s several options of the semi-auto MSR 10 Hunter take the popular AR-10 platform to new heights, offering greater performance, expanded caliber choices and a modern design, plus a full suite of custom upgrades packaged as standard features.

The Savage MSR 10 Hunter delivers performance from its upgraded Savage barrel with a 5R rifling, a two-stage trigger with nickel boron treatment, and a tough Melonite QPQ finish. Other upgrades including a freefloat fore-end, custom-forged lower receiver and BLACKHAWK! adjustable buttstock and pistol grip turn the Hunter into the ultimate big game rifle.

    You can get a 200 grain bullet going about 100 fps faster in a 338

    The fact of the matter is that for a given case size and operating pressure you will get the same velocity with bullets with corresponding sectional densities though they are different calibers. This will mean heavier bullets for the larger calibers. You never get something for nothing.


    Let me be the first to say, what? How when using the exact same case as a .308 (winchester I assume and not LC) do you acheive higher velocities with a heavier projectile? Granted there are a wide variety of pills from berger to lapua for .308 that range from 155 to 220 for bolt action and 175 juggarnaus for ar10. As long as I’ve been reloading that math seems off so I’d like to be educated.
